UrbanGold Identifies Two High Priority Gold in Soil Targets at Pallador Main - Drilling Planned
Ottawa, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - September 8, 2020) - UrbanGold Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UGM) ("UrbanGold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has received a detailed interpretation report of the soil B-horizon sampling completed earlier in the summer in the northwest portion of its 100%-owned Pallador property (the "Property") in the Troilus-Frotet area, Quebec. The 659-sample survey has identified several anomalous gold targets, including two high priority targets located south and near the drilling recently completed by Kenorland Minerals, where numerous gold intersections have been reported (Kenorland Minerals August 31, 2020 news release).
The soil B-horizon program was completed over the area due to the near absence of outcropping bedrock and the presence of numerous gold bearing boulders of up to 102 g/t Au (UrbanGold September 2, 2020 news release). An interpretation of the results was completed by Remi Charbonneau PhD of Consultant Islandis, an expert in this field.
Dr. Charbonneau was able to identify up to seven areas of interest from the soil sample results, with two areas being earmarked as higher priority. The two areas of interest are located approximately 600m south of recent Kenorland Minerals drill results, in an area presumed to be on strike with its recent discovery based on available geophysical data. The multi-element study, which also includes anomalous silver values, suggests a local source which remains to be verified by drilling.
UrbanGold drilling is scheduled to resume on several portions of the property this fall, including on the soil targets, where no historical drilling is recorded in the area, except for the recent Kenorland holes immediately north. Details on the upcoming drill program on this portion of the property will be provided upon completion of the surface work later this month.
Technical aspects of this news release have been reviewed and approved by Mathieu Stephens, P.Geo., President and CEO for UrbanGold, the Qualified Person, as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
